Casse saying NOBLE BIRD will scratch.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

It's about bloody time this horse had a break, he hasn't been himself since October.

Shaman Ghost earned that win...and justified his odds.
Got to give some props to Dolphus, who went to the front and nearly pulled off the upset. Rachel's little half brother has developed into a real graded stakes horse this year.

Shaman Ghost isn't going to wow you with his dazzle, but he sure is a consistent, hard-knocking boy. I am a fanatic of his.

Castellano saying he reminds him of Ghostzapper is high praise. Really love Shaman Ghost, just checked BH to get an update and was very happy to see he got another graded score.

Mike Watchmaker's thoughts on the race:

Anyone with an appreciation of racing’s history knows that the Pimlico Special has a storied one. Unfortunately, the race isn’t what it used to be. And yet I can’t help but think the Pimlico Special could be reborn with a new, carefully chosen spot on the calendar other than mid-May, even if it meant weakening the Black-Eyed Susan card (and yes, I’m aware that it might be a little awkward running the Pimlico Special at, say, Laurel, but seeing a once-great race diminished is worse).

But the Pimlico Special still has a name that carries some weight, and with a game victory in Friday’s renewal, Shaman Ghost added that name to a career résumé that’s really quite astounding. Think about some of the races Shaman Ghost has won. He took the Queen’s Plate, the Brooklyn, the Woodward, the Santa Anita Handicap, and now the Pimlico Special, and he’s not done yet. Shaman Ghost isn’t a Hall of Famer. He’s a good, hard-knocking handicap horse who should only engender admiration. But there are some horses in the Hall of Fame who do not have the CV he does.
